A lot of the time, skincare can feel like a gamble. You have to start with an investment of both time and money in the hopes that a given formula will do what it says it will, whether that’s to tone down dark circles or clear up a case of bacne. But the risk doesn’t always pay off—and when that happens, you get stuck with a dud only to be left at square one, searching for a product that actually lives up to the hype. If you’ve got a pile of half-used products under your bathroom sink, join the club!

This is all to say: All anyone really wants out of their cleanser, serum, and SPF is results. To make that dream a reality, we went straight to a panel of experts (top dermatologists, to be exact) for our annual Women’s Health Healthy Skin Awards. Alongside the WH beauty team, they’re sharing their input on the tried-and-true products that they both recommend to patients and use themselves.

Also: Since your skin concerns are unique to you, we’ve divvied up our winners according to skin type. Whether you’re working with sensitive skin, looking to calm rosacea, or seeking the perfect sunscreen for oily skin, you’ve got options. With that, keep scrolling to see which products are worth adding to your arsenal—and get ready to glow.
